@Freeplay I like to think that *some* GUIs are pretty neat. Like Gtk, Qt or smth. Not swing. Not tkinter. And definitely not the custom GUI I wrote a year ago for BASAV and Dodge to Drums.

I've read a few comics by stonetoss today, and now I feel the strong urge to put my own politcal opinions on the internet in a similar way.

just got goosebumps from the russian national anthem

@ninos alternate title: insanely rich people can just not work and be fine

hot take: all banks should have to publicly show the amount of money they owe to people vs. the amount of money they actually have.

@Freeplay 's software setup: (E&OE)
- FoX desktop
- FireFox (or WaterFox, but not IceWeasel)
- Fox audio player
- FoxEditor

anyway, I enabled ccache, so it's a bit less of a big deal.

What fucking retard forgets to plug in his laptop before letting it compile firefox overnight?
